“Best thing about California!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Every state should be so lucky as to have a university with the caliber of faculty, academic choices, and first class facilities that Cal has! All of the benefits of an Ivy League education without any of the stuffiness and pretensions. And there is no more exciting and beautiful "college town" than the Bay Area which surrounds it.

“Best Public University in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Beautiful campus, excellent atmosphere, great experience. OK so I am biased. Graduated from there in 1996 in History. Award winning professors, and authors like Levine, Litwack, Middlekauf, etc.
The football team could use some help, but otherwise. . .Go Bears!

“UC Berkeley's campus is iconic and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

My Alma Mater, check out the Doe Library's North Reading Room, have a bite at the Free Speech Movement cafe and take a walk up the campus to the Asian Studies library for a look at some of the more modern architecture on campus.

“a second home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

the campus has become a second home for both of my young adult children as they pursued both undergraduate and graduate studies in the field of science; an excellent value in higher education, I cannot recommend it highly enough as a source for the best that public schools can offer; after ten years of absorbing the culture of the school through my children, I can say the campus is forever a part of our family!
